In a story of neighborly jest that grew into epic proportions, a green garbage bin got to wheel about the whole town with a handsome man on her arm.
When 54-year-old Carl Stanojevic got a text from his neighbor Nick with a request to “take my bins out,” he responded “yeah sure no problem any particular place?”
He took the lucky wheelie bin he was ‘caring’ for to the local beach in Mackay, Queensland—then to the surf club, then to do some chores including a stop at a hardware store for socializing. After stopping at several restaurants, they took some R&R.
“We went for a massage and then to the tattoo parlour to get a couple of extra 6s on the bin. A bit of a tattoo, then stopped at the pub for a coldie,” Stanojevic told the Guardian on Friday.
Noticing the presence of the bin, some garbage men and women stopped to take a picture, and later the green bin, now sporting her tattoo, stopped to make a phone call “to talk trash,” as Stanojevic recounted.

After five hours spent around the Australian town, Stanojevic returned home with news he had completed the favor—sending a photo album of the day’s events, which reportedly blew Nick away.
Local news reported “Bin day not half rubbish for Mackay man doing his neighbour a favour,” adding that the image of bin #6 gazing pensively across the water was “anything but rubbish.”
Stanojevic told the Guardian that putting a smile on people’s faces, especially his neighbor’s, was totally worth it, especially since Mackay is a town that relies on tourism and so was hit hard during the lockdowns.

He said of his neighbor, “We catch up for a beer when we can and have a chat and a few laughs. He’s a beautiful person. You’d do anything for him. He said take my bin out. If he had said put my bin out it would have been just a normal day in Mackay.”
Cheers to japes that can be enjoyed by all.
